Splash Pad with Cousin D

A little while ago (who am I kidding, it was a long while ago), I got a call from my sister-in-law who said they (meaning Bart's brother, their son, and herself) were going to be in our area and asked if we would like to meet up at the splash pad in Scottsdale Quarter so the kiddos could play. Of course we said yes.
And then I finally remembered my camera.

Cousin D took to the water a lot better than Jack. In fact, Jack wanted nothing to do with these circular fountains. D had a blast though:

And he was so cute when he walked up to me and showed me his "cheese" smile.
Dill: you are growing up way too fast! You look like your three in this photo!
(Note: D is only 2 1/2 months older than Jack, who was 18 months at this time)

Meanwhile, my little one decided walking around and observing everything around him would be a whole lot funner then the fountains. This is an activity Jack does on a daily basis, so I was not surprised when he chose to do this. Oh, and he didn't want to take a photo for me either.
Again, not surprised.

I was able to get photos of us with our busy boy. Unfortunately, this was during the time Bart was growing a mustache. Don't worry, the creeper 'stache is gone now.

And then a little girl accidentally ran into Jack. He unfortunately landed on his face and ended up with a bloody lip. We preceded to clean him up before heading over to Chipotle for dinner.

We ended up having a blast and hope we can hang out again soon!

Just Me and My Lonely Cookie.

There's nothing like eating a Paradise Bakery cookie in bed at 11:00 pm while missing your hubby.

For all of you who don't know, Bart is now working as full-time security at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort at Gainey Ranch, while he finishes school. Tonight he is currently working the night shift (ie: 7 pm to 7 am).

We are both ecstatic that this job opportunity came up. And he absolutely loves working there. But I have to admit that at night...I get a little lonely...and a lot more worried. Hence my comfort cookie at so late an hour.

I'm sure I'll get used to it.

And thank goodness the weather has cooled down so I can start riding my bike to work again. I have no restraint when it comes to sweets.
